It depend.

From a developer point of view, 3 years is very long, especially when
you have to maintains code or packages and the upstream don't help.

From my own experience of busy sysadmin, server are replaced less often.
We buy server with 3 year warranty, some of them have 5 years.
But I think we all have servers running older than that we don't
especially want to replace right now (Re-installing distrib-coffee is
not so easy...).
